Eligible businesses in the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym sectors may be entitled to a one-off cash grant of up to £18,000 from their local council.

Your business may be eligible if it is:

  • in the non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care or gym sectors
  • trading on 1 April 2021

Businesses must apply by midnight on the 30 June 2021.

Only 6 days to go: Businesses in the non-essential retail, hospitality, leisure, personal care and accommodation sectors have 6 days left to apply for their Restart grant – a one-off cash grant of up to £18,000. Apply by midnight on the 30th June 2021: http://orlo.uk/xPg7W

Additional Restrictions Grant

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) provides local councils with grant funding to support businesses that are severely impacted by restrictions, and that may or may not be in the business rates system.

Local councils can determine which businesses to support and determine the amount of funding provided from the ARG scheme.

The Mid Sussex District Council Additional Restrictions Grant scheme (Round 5) also closes at midnight on the 30 June 2021.  It is likely with this round we will spend our full allocation of funding and will not be able to make further discretionary grants after Round 5 even though the Roadmap has been extended to the 19 July 2021..
